An Arizona mother killed her 9-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son Saturday morning and told police she heard voices telling her to do it, according to the cops.
Yui Inoue, 40, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder, the Arizona Republic.
Cops said Inoue flagged down an officer near her home in the southeast Phoenix suburb of Tempe around 7 a.m.
She told the cop she was hearing voices telling her to kill her children, according to police.
Officers found the kids dead from physical trauma inside the apartment Inoue shared with her husband, and immediately detained her, Tempe police.
